With our Engineering programs in Albany, you can help your child's imagination soar as he or she builds structures and tinkers with technology. Our courses are tailored to be fun and interactive, providing an enjoyable way for your child to master a range of engineering concepts while giving his or her creativity a real workout. Buddying up with a partner, kids take on a new project each session, such as designing and building one of seven possible bridge types using K’NEX® pieces or constructing a machine with LEGO® bricks. It’s an excellent way for your child to learn useful 21st century skills that will come in handy in the classroom and beyond!
